On the Problem of Modeling Context for Embodied Interaction.
In: Proceedings of Embodied Interaction: Theory and Practice in HCI, Workshop in conjunction with CHI 2011, pp. 25-28, [Conference or Workshop Item]

Abstract

Researchers have been investigating context-aware systems for various decades. Fields of research such as Ubiquitous Computing, Situated Computing or Embodied Interaction are strongly coupled to this basic thought of situating applications or objects in specific contexts. However, a context only considers the present and neglects the high dynamics of the situation, including the past and the future, it is embedded in. We argue that this leads to a fundamental context-modeling problem. Moreover, we propose a new model for describing highly dynamic environments with situations, contexts and circumstances. We show that a situation has a Gestalt and outline the importance of analyzing situations for future research challenges.
